Chris Hughton with the Barclays Manager of the Month award.

Brighton & Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton has claimed the Barclays Manager of the Month award for February.

Hughton led Albion through an unbeaten month, securing 3-1 and 4-1 home victories over West Ham United and Swansea City respectively, alongside a 1-1 draw away at Stoke City.

He said, “It’s a great achievement for the club and certainly for a group of players that have improved as the season has gone on.

“It’s confidence that’s built up through the season, and it’s a good period to have what is our best run of form. We’ve got momentum at the moment, and we also look like scoring goals.”

The Seagulls boss fought off competition from Javi Gracia (Watford), Jurgen Klopp (Liverpool), Mauricio Pochettino (Tottenham Hotspur) and David Wagner (Huddersfield Town) for the award.
